he grandeur of Las Vegas with its 24-hour
neon glow and half scale
replica
of the
world-famous Eiffel Tower served as the
backdrop for AHEPA's 2023 Supreme
Convention, held July 24 to 28. It was the
venerable Order's 101st annual meeting.
In this unforgettable week, the past and present converged
and provided an experience like no other. Everyone's shared
passion for Hellenism would shine brilliantly beneath the
scorching desert sun and Vegas' bright lights.
As convention attendees converged upon the renowned
Paris and Horseshoe Hotels, they embarked on a journey that
transcended borders, time-zones, and temperatures, to carry on
AHEPA's century-long legacy and attend to the Good of the Order.
In doing so, convention delegates unanimously elected Savas
C. Tsivicos, Ocean, N.J., as Supreme President for the 2023-24
administrative year.
" It is an honor and privilege to be elected AHEPA Supreme
President, " Tsivicos said. " My sincere appreciation is given to the
convention delegates who placed their support and trust in me to
lead this longstanding unique organization in the coming year. "
Tsivicos' first act was to open AHEPA's Emergency Relief Fund
to collect donations to assist victims of Greece's wildfires. He also
met with the Supreme Lodge and the district governors to highlight
programs that address membership growth and expansion.
He also appealed to AHEPA's core leadership team to connect
with their chapters to promote AHEPA programs and projects
that support AHEPA's mission.
" The need to provide community service is never ending,
both in the United States and abroad. I am eager to work with the
Supreme Lodge, and our membership, to address this challenge,
as well as others that may come our way, " he said. " Of course, the
promotion of Hellenic ideals will always be a priority for AHEPA,
and I pledge to keep AHEPA on a steady path set forth by my
predecessors with a spirit that is true to our mission. "
Supreme President Tsivicos's team of Supreme Lodge
officers are: Canada President Emmanuel Constas, Supreme
Vice President E. Chris Kaitson, Supreme Secretary Dr. Zenon
Christodoulou, Supreme Treasurer Demetrios Kirkiles, Supreme
Counselor Themistocles Frangos, and Supreme Athletic Director
Chris Atsaves. The Supreme Governors are: Kostas G. Sofikitis,
Region I; Georgio F. Comninos, Region II; Dimitri Rozanitis,
Region III; Alexander Boutsioulis, Region IV; John Karapides,
